Interpretive Summary: Soft red and soft white winter wheat is used for a wide array of products in the domestic milling industry. This report provides soft wheat breeders with information from industry on the acceptability of flours made from newly developed cultivars. The primary purposes of the project are to educate uuyers, direct marketing, and provide feedback to breeders.
Technical Abstract: The Soft Wheat Quality Council (SWQC) will provide an organizataion structure to evaluate the quality of soft wheat experimental lines and varieties that may be grown in the traditional soft wheat growing regions of the U.S. The SWQC will also establish other activities as requested by the membership. The SWQC operates under the direction and supervision of the Wheat Quality Council (WQC). The mission of the SWQC is to provide a forum for leadership and cummunication in promoting continuous quality improvement among the various elements of the soft wheat community. In this panel, most submitted cultivars were identified by industry members as being similar to, or somewhat better than the check varieties.
